Did You Know?


In Brazil, the show is titled "Sunny Entre Estrelas" (meaning Sunny Between Stars), and the character Sonny Munroe was actually re-named to Sunny. This happened most likely because of the pronunciation. See more »

Sonny With a Chance- Really good.
28 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sonny With a Chance is one of the best shows on Disney Channel. I personally think it is better than Hannah Montana and Suite Life on Deck. I watch both of these shows, but I think that this show is the funniest. The pilot is a slow start to the show. It basically introduces the main characters and sets the scenes for the other episodes. The rest of the show afterward, however, is very entertaining. Although some of the humor is a little cheesy, overall, the show is great. Give the show a chance. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Demi Lovato plays Sonny and her acting is great. Her faces are hilarious and her character is enthusiastic and peppy. My Favorite, however, would have to be Chad Dylan Cooper, played by Sterling Knight. He's a mix between Cody Linley's Character in Hannah Montana, Jake, and Chad Michael Murray's old Gilmore Girls character, Tristan. He's confidant and cocky, with a good side to him. He's funny, but he has an attitude. Sterling does a great job playing this character. He and Demi's character have great chemistry, as enemies and love interests. I especially look forward to their interactions and their relationship growing in future episodes.
